Rogue Spear is a shooter of a different cut. One without health packs and super-futuristic weapons. Death is as close as one shot away -- and since you're usually taking on a superior number of forces, the game stresses solid strategy and planning instead of running in with guns blazing. While your anti-terrorist organization will see action on three continents, most of Rogue Spear takes place in parts of Russia and the former Soviet states. Those familiar with Rainbow Six will be able to jump right into Rogue Spear without having to even crack open the manual. The controls are basically the same as in the original, with a few keys remapped to give it the playability of a more standard shooter. Like Rainbow Six, when you start a mission, you can either opt to go with the pre-determined routes, weapon loadouts, and squad assignments or choose your own. You can customize all of your team members and their paths if you want.
